The Texas Rangers reached an agreement with former Toronto reliever Jason Frasor on a one-year deal.
Frasor, 35, was 1-1 with a 4.12 ERA in 43 2/3 innings with Toronto last season.
Terms of the deal were not immediately released released, but Frasor earned $3.75 million last season.
Frasor has already passed a physical.
The news that the Rangers were nearing a deal with Frasor was first reported by Gerry Fraley of The Dallas Morning News.
Frasor is a strikeout pitcher much like Adams, had 53 strikeouts for a career-high rate of 10.9 strikeouts per nine innings last season, and missed almost 2 months with forearm tightness.
Frasor has served as a setup man for most of his career, and is the Toronto Blue Jays all-time leader in appearances with 505, although it does have 36 career saves over nine seasons at the major-league level.
The team designated catcher Eli Whiteside to create roster space for Frasor
